“I have a background and appreciation to explore both traditional and contemporary topics in
Islam and deep appreciation for classical Islamic texts which I can credit to my days of
translating Islamic texts under Dr. Yusuf Zia Kavaci. My years of experience in his class as well
as many similar experiences over my lifetime helped me to understand the nuances and
delicacies involved in communicating previously compiled texts into new cultures, languages,
and times. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to facilitate content and programming which will meet the evolving needs of our Ummah in this fast-paced world.” – Dr. Islam
